My custom 1/64th diecast model trucks

Recommended Posts

New here and wanted to post up some of my past work. Most of these are Die Cast Promotions trucks and trailers. Few SpecCast, ERTL, and custom made stuff in here as well. A lot of the parts you see such as stacks, bumpers, visors, fenders, etc. have been all hand made. Frames have been stretched using brass channel pieces.

Warning: I got a lot of pictures!

The chopped Pete I had worked off and on for a few years. This was one of the very first ever 379s that DCP produced.

What it started out as after I did some customizing to...

This Pete I sold on ebay but during shipping some of the parts broke and fell off of it and the customer was picking, one was cause the white on top the cab didn't match and other small things. Oh well, it is rebuilt and will be paired up with a combine and headers.

Couple of trucks that I built for A&K (besides the red one, that was my own). These all went to the Toy Trucker and Contractor show in Indianapolis a couple summers ago.

Second one is a 379 with a spread axle hopper bottom. Two-toned the painted, lowered it, added the pusher axle with half fenders on top, shaved and added the nine cab lights, boxed end bumper, rear light panel, and silver and chrome accents.

Thats it for now. I do have a few other W.I.P. that need to be finished up sometime. The last couple were built around a year ago and the others up to 3 years ago were built. A lot are gone now...either sold online or on ebay. Ask any questions you got on them. Thanks.

Excellent work! Amazing detail for 1/64th scale! That's an impressive collection you have. I like the farm machinery haulers, and the hay bales.

Thanks guys!

Actually the last one I bought was a year ago, I've been out of the model truck game for a while.

And these are Hot Wheels sized? VERY nice indeed!

Little bigger than H.W. stuff. The one pictured above name Pure Outlaw, the long low black and orange Peterbilt...that measures 2.5in. tall x 14.5in. long. That thing has a scale 330" wheelbase as well.
